Every Bitmi pad is ready to use right out of the box. Just plug it to any free USB port on a computer, open your DAW and in MIDI devices you should check for Bitmi to appear as a connected device. Load your VSTi or samples (Ableton, EZdrummer, Addictive Drums, etc), and you are ready to play.
Note: Each pad is set to MIDI number 38 as the default note. MIDI Channel is set to 10 as default also.
You can change the output MIDI note with the -/+ buttons. Every time you unplugged the USB cable, the MIDI note will be 38 again.
There is no need to change the sensitivity value, but if you wish to do it you can do it easily. On the back of the unit, you’ll find a little white screw, clockwise will be a higher setting, counterclockwise will be lower one. You will need any 1/8″(3mm) flat-headed screwdriver.
In order to mount the pad on a cymbal stand, first remove the wingnut and cymbal felt from the stand. Then screw the locking nut all the way down.
Screw the pad clockwise with a few turns, unscrew the locking nut until it touches the pad, secure firmly.
